Dreadnought body style gives you excellent natural acoustic projection

Ever since guitarists have been relying on the natural projection of their instruments, the powerful voice of the dreadnought body style has been an all-around favorite among flatpickers. The FG850 gives you a bold and balanced voice that's perfect for anything from traditional bluegrass to the driving rhythms of modern acoustic rock. You'll love the full sound of Yamaha's FG850, particularly when you play more aggressively.
